2022 NCAA DIII Women’s Indoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 1

NEW ORLEANS – We dotted our i’s and crossed our t’s.

Here is the first installment of the NCAA Division III Women’s Indoor Track & Field National Rating Index for the 2022 season, as released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons have been used, which means this objective ranking is comprised solely of marks from the 2022 indoor track & field season.

Johns Hopkins headlines the National TFRI for the first time in program history. The Blue Jays are used to that top branch in cross country, but track & field is a different story, topping out at No. 2 in each of the past three years. Johns Hopkins peppered the Descending Order List with 13 top-10 marks already in 2022. Ella Baran is top-ranked in the 3000 (9:41.87c) and sits third in the mile (4:53.92c). Annie Gutierrez has notched four national top-10 efforts so far thanks to a superb effort in the pentathlon, which has her ranked third in that multi. Gutierrez is also top-10 in the 60 hurdles (No. 3, 8.88), long jump (No. 9, 5.53m/18-1¾) and pole vault (No. 9, 3.65m/11-11¾). The Blue Jays also flew to the top of the DMR chart with their 12:40.52.

Loras has been ranked among the best programs in the nation for the past 12 weeks, so why should it change? The Duhawks are ranked second to begin the 2022 indoor season. Loras has eight national top-10 marks, including a national leader in the guise of Kassie Parker in the mile at 4:50.29f. Marion Edwards has entrenched herself into the national top-5 of three different events: 60 (No. 2, 7.73), 200 (No. 2, 25.49f) and the 4×400 (No. 2, 3:56.41).

Washington (Mo.) comes in ranked third through the first few weeks of the season. The Bears have been a fixture in the top-5 to begin the season, as they were No. 1 in 2017, No. 4 in 2018, No. 1 in 2019 and No. 2 in 2020. WashU holds eight national top-10 marks, including a pair of national-leading efforts that include Emma Kelley, who surged to the top of the 800-meter list at 2:10.86f and anchored the top-ranked 4×400 relay at 3:56.16f. Lauren Gay is another athlete to watch this season for the Bears, as she’s billed third in the 200 at 25.54f.

UChicago slides in at No. 4 and hasn’t been out of the top-5 in each of the past two seasons in which it competed. The Maroons have amassed seven national top-10 marks in 2022 so far with Isabel Maletich accounting for two of those in the horizontal jumps (No. 1 in the long jump at 5.86m/19-2¾, No. 2 in the triple jump at 12.01m/39-5) and Claudia Hartnett holding down two top-10 marks in the 800 (No. 2, 2:12.18f) and the mile (No. 9, 5:06.52f).

UW-Oshkosh rounds out the top-5 with seven national top-10 marks to its credit as well. Five of those top-10 marks come from the 800 and mile combined with three in the national top-5 of the 800 thanks to Cyna Madigan (No. 3, 2:13.27f), Zanzie Demco (No. 4, 2:13.29f) and Libby Geisness (No. 5, 2:14.31f). Demco is also ranked sixth nationally in the mile at 5:01.45f.

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 1: No. 6 Mount Union, No. 7 Ithaca, No. 8 Wartburg, No. 9 Dubuque and No. 10 SUNY Geneseo. This is a program-best ranking for the Purple Raiders, who previously topped out at No. 7 back in 2012.

Mark your calendars for March 11-12, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships will take place at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
